Our most important rooms belong to our children. We will walk with you and support you as your child develops from the crib to the cap and gown.
What putting the family first means for us...
As parents, you know your children best. It is also your responsibility to raise them and help them grow in all areas of life. To help support you on your journey, our children's ministry always seeks to help parents and serve families in any way possible. We would love to meet you and see how we can serve your family.
We have an amazing children's programing and nursery that runs during the entirety of all our Sunday morning service. We encourage you and your children to check it out. Kid's love it. Being family friendly means we trust your judgement as parents and know that sometimes for various reasons you may want to keep your kid's in service with you. At Grace you are more than welcome to do that we simply ask that you are aware if your child is being a distraction to others in our service. If so, there is a great area in the back of our overflow seating where you can still enjoy the service while you kid's have a little more space to be comfortable. You can also check your children in with our ministry staff and nursery at any time.
For information on how to check your children into the nursery or kid's programing please scroll down.

Kid's Ministry On Sunday Mornings:
Here is what our children's ministry looks like on a Sunday morning during both of our services.
Kid's church is a whole lot of fun with a purpose. Our Kid's Church runs during the entirety of the 8:30 and 11 AM worship service. You can check your children into the Children's Wing upstairs when you arrive at church 5 minutes before the start of our services. For your child's safety please make sure a parent or guardian walks your child to the check in area of our kid's wing every Sunday. At Kid's Church your kid's will be cared for by our well equipped and background checked staff. Our staff will provide your children with developmentally appropriate activities and lessons all while creating a fun and safe environment for your child to grow and learn.
The Guppy Room
The Guppy Room serves as a transitional room for children ages 3-4 years old. This room was developed to provide more structure for your child as they develop. You can check your children into the Children's Wing upstairs when you arrive at church 5 minutes before the start of our services. For your child's safety please make sure a parent or guardian walks your child to the check in area of our kid's wing every Sunday. Children in the Guppy Room participate in age appropriate activities in a loving and caring atmosphere. A typical lesson consists of a Bible Story with an accompanying craft. The activities are fast paced to help maintain attention and participation. A snack is also provided. Kid's seem to really love our guppy room and its staff. You can take your preschool aged kids to the guppy room after the third worship song during both of our services.
Welcome to our Nursery! We have qualified, vetted staff to help you and your infant or toddler have a wonderful experience at Grace Free Church. You can check your children into the nursery downstairs when you arrive at church 5 minutes before the start of our services. Our nursery serves children 3 years old and younger. Our Nursery is a bug free zone! If your child has a fever, runny nose, cough, diarrhea, unknown rash, discharge from the eyes, illness being treated with antibiotics for less than 24 hours please keep them at home. We look forward to seeing them when they are feeling better.

Going To Make A Difference In Our Community
Grace Free Church's Student Ministry is designed to give Jr. and Sr. high students a safe place to be honest, to search for God and to be themselves. We strive to love God and love others. We do this by helping teens develop a deeper relationship with God, with adult staff and with their peers.

What is AWANA?
Awana is a nondenominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him. Awana Clubs International supplies programs, materials and training for more than 12,000 churches in over 110 countries. Their message to churches is simple: We're here to serve you with a ministry that is all about fun with a purpose — to win and grow kids for Christ!
That’s why Awana offers a series of clubs and programs geared to the needs of a particular age or grade. As a vital part of our local church ministry, Awana clubs and programs effectively reach young people with the good news of Jesus Christ. Here at Grace Free Church our AWANA ministry works with other ministries to give our children a well-balanced emphasis on knowing Jesus and how we can live for Him and serve Him.
Each AWANA ministry is broken into three general areas: Game Time, Handbook Time & Large Group Teaching Time. Children are encouraged to memorize scripture and are taught about Jesus and how to live a Christian life. Children earn badges and awards for memorizing Bible verses. Children can also earn AWANA shares which they can redeem in the AWANA Store for all kinds of cool prizes.
THURSDAY NIGHTS: 6:30pm - 8:00pm at Grace Free Church.
Groups for AWANA kids: Cubbies - 3 & 4 year olds; Sparks - K through 2nd Grade; T&T Adventure - 3rd & 4th Grade; T&T Challenge - 5th & 6th Grade
